Julia Broudy, Lily Braunstein, and Grace Knobler are Wildwood seniors who have been a part of the Wildwood community since elementary school.  During high school, the three of us had the opportunity to travel to Nepal through the International Community Involvement program at our school. On this trip we taught English in schools and spent time working with the Unatti Foundation center for girls.  This amazing organization is home to eighteen girls from the ages 5 to 20. 
 
As we applied to colleges this year we reflected upon the importance of our Wildwood education. A popular saying goes, “educate a girl, change the world.”  With this in mind, we are hoping to raise enough money to send Rita, a 16 year old girl from the Unatti Foundation to a three year nursing program.  This program costs $7,000 U.S., and we believe that with the help of the Wildwood community we can change Rita’s future and in doing so help change the future of many others.  
 
Please join us in improving the lives of the girls at the Unatti Foundation and in improving the communication between our communities.  
 
We ask that you donate directly to our GoFundMe page so that we can ensure the money goes directly towards a nursing education.

Thank you!
